Michael Simmelsgaard, the head of operations and maintenance at DONG Energy Wind Power, explained that the award follows a process of increasing the effectiveness of the installations and reducing costs by standardising the processes for their operation and maintenance.

Tremendous effort
“This is a big achievement and I’m very proud to see we’re now harvesting the fruits of a tremendous effort done in standardising our workflows and processes, and I’m proud we received this certification,” said Simmelsgaard.

“This certification confirms the skills and expertise of DONG Energy in connection with the operation and maintenance of offshore wind-power assets, ensuring optimal long-term asset utilisation and enabling risk-based decision-making.”

ISO (the International Organisation for Standardisation) is an independent, non-governmental membership organisation and the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. The ISO 55001 takes factors into account how companies manage risk, financial performance, adherence to regulations and workforce safety.
